Peoria Flash Mobs: 40 Teens Pound Woman’s Car – Threaten to Kick White Honky Ass – Wave Gun

This is Peoria, Illinois’ second time to hit the press with a story of angry teen flash mobs. The (Peoria Journal Star) called the behavior of the mobs “harassment,” but the victims of the brazen teens were definitely threatened. The only way to know from the Pjstart report that there was a racial component to at least one of the threats, was this:

One teen called him “honky,” while another threatened to “kick his white (expletive).”

Peoria Flash Mob Summer 2011?

Doug Burgess, a Public Information Officer said this:

“It’s not groups that are getting together to wreak havoc on the community,” Burgess said.

In other words, the mobs are instantaneous (the meaning of flash mobs – they are always instantaneous) and not “organized.” Nevertheless, it is clear they are “wreaking havoc” on the community. In June 2011, Peoria suffered flash mobs and the Peoria Chronicle headlined “Peorians Living in Fear.”

In the two separate incidents yesterday, a 21-year-old woman’s car was surrounded. The mob beat on the car and broke the driver’s side window. One of the male teens pointed a handgun at a passenger in the car.

Good news though, they didn’t attempt to open the car door and they didn’t “make any threats.” That must mean, no “verbal” threats. Actions speak louder than words. I’d say pointing a gun anywhere near the car is a threat. Breaking a window is a threat. What’s going on in Peoria? PC is running amuck.

A second mob of about 50 teens blocked roadways. A Meals on Wheels driver was followed to the home of the delivery he was making. The driver got out of his car and made the delivery, with teens still surrounding him, yelling racial slurs and pounding on his car.

Now these kids know where someone elderly and disabled lives. Meals on Wheels recipients often leave their doors unlocked on delivery day, as they are not able to readily answer the doorbell. The driver should have abandoned his route and driven to police or fire headquarters. I’m not criticizing him, but these are serious matters and Meals on Wheels should have trained him to abandon his route in suspicious or dangerous circumstances.

A Meals on Wheels delivery driver was making his way to a home in the 800 block of West Nowland Avenue about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday when he encountered a group of 15 teens – 13 males and two females – walking down the middle of the road.

The group would not yield to the motorist, who followed him until reaching the house where he had to make the meal delivery. As he exited to take the food to the door, he was verbally attacked, according to a report on the incident.

One teen called him “honky,” while another threatened to “kick his white (expletive).”

As the volunteer driver returned to his car to leave, the teens surrounded his car and pounded on it. The vehicle was not damaged, but police noted disturbances to dust on the vehicle, backing up the driver’s story.

The photo above is from Attack the System, which says the photo is “an eye witness account” of a “so-called” flash mob in Peoria, Illinois in June 2011:

They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill alll the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help…

Residents are very shaken, both black and white alike. This is the fifth large mob action in about a month with smaller groups of 10-12 are out threatening children and adults a few evenings a week or later into the night…

This website has documented about 100 flash mobs and “wildling” instances in the U.S. in 2011.

    It’s well past the time that white America started responding to the racist thugs!! If not put in check, they will only escalate. Stand up and fight back… that’s the only language these animals understand!!

  • Having a black president sure has brought our country together. If anything … it’s more racist then ever before. Oh, I forgot. Blacks cannot be racist, they’re black. Only whites.

    These flash mobs have all been up north (Illinois-no concealed carry). Here in the flyover states we are armed. My wife and I both carry concealed and in our pickup we have access to two 5.56 rifles. Pointing a pistol is a threat can be met with deadly force. Don’t come down here and try that. Just sayin.

  • Another reason I never leave home with out my sweet little Mossberg 500 pump 12ga.

    Excellent for “mob” control since it can take out more than one at a time. Amazing how quickly a bunch of thugs and cowards disperse when faced with a little blood and the thought of eternity.

  • That picture is not of Peoria.

  • It’s unfortunate that multiple offender crimes are becoming common occurrences, however calling them flash mobs is inaccurate. I’m a co-founder of a flash mob troupe. Our events take a lot of planning and we always research the applicable laws to make sure that we don’t do anything illegal. Many of us believe that group crimes are not flash mobs:
